My best friend (who, staying on forum form, saw Autechre with me in Atlanta back in 2001 at the Roxy) gave me a bottle of Prairie's Christmas Bomb, appropriately enough, a few days before Christmas this year. Comes off like a bit of cross of two of my favorite ales, Untitled Artwork's Chocolate Macaroon Stout and Wicked Weed's (sadly retired) Xibalba. Cacao nibs, a kiss of chiles, and 12% alcohol. Very cozy and great for a cold afternoon.

Been getting a lot of beer mail lately, spent a good 120 bucks the past week.  This is is from The Veil Brewing-

"IdonteverwanttoBU³ is the triple dry-hopped version of our 0 IBU DIPA. Hopped with a ton of Citra and Mosaic. Juicy flavors of ripe mango, mixed berries, and honey."

Damn good, was so dank and tropical.  Was like an orange smoothie.

 

Had made an Instagram for my music but now it just turned into posting about beers, haha.

Got this shipped from LA.  Wasn't cheap, but worth it- some of the best shit i've ever had.

I used to buy an American beer every time I went to the offo 3 years ago and now I can't even keep up with the beers being release here.

 

Deez few are good

I got suckered into buying a limited edition 4-pack of these because of their partnership with EC Comics and was surprised that the beer was extremely good!

Had a nice beer from a brewery in my city recently and it was refreshing to see when I poured it out there was a decent amount of yeast in suspension that really added some earthiness to the floral and dank hops and sweet crystal malts . I think many ambers and red ales are compromised due to excess filtering

Are milkshake beers becoming a thing? I had one last night that straight up tasted like a milkshake.

I think filtering is actually becoming less and less popular. You can see brands like carlsburg releasing their unfiltered larger etc.

I agree ale don't really need to be filtered all that much, just enough so you're not pickin' bits out of your teeth. But people do like the look of a clear larger, plus leaving un-filtered because it has a better taste is a bit redundant to me as most largers don't have a particularly strong taste anyway.

Wow. Looks super cool. Even the craft ale cult cynic within agrees with that. 
 

Off the supermarket this afternoon to get some booze. Not sure what to get. I’ve been sipping on Budvar pilsner lately which is quite an agreeable beer. I’m bored of the usual supermarket fodder but also not keen on spending minor fortunes for ultra fashionable beer. Hmmm tricky 🧐 

Maybe Hoegaarden will hit the spot...

Procured a couple of these

went to supermarket and was very hum drum in my moody attitude towards beer, so stocked up on tonic water and budvar and then ducked into M&S and got a few of these. It’s just fine. Nothing special but better than fucking Asda.

Had this one sitting in my basement for about a year now.  Kinda strange, the American trappist thing, but it's pretty good.  I'm not a big fan of stouts (hate coffee) but this is a decent, mild stout.

It's going really well with my dinner, a pizza (from a local pizzeria) with gorgonzola, mozz, pear, arugula, and candied pecans.

Never seen these before. Argentinian beer. My local wine cellar sometimes does odd beers from round the world as they supply local restaurants. They are straight from the fridge and I’m drinking them (I have 2) down by the river Thames. Cheers 🍻 😀

Seems I’m on a bit of a beer mission today as I have a few days off.

Procured this from Waitrose, it’s absolutely delightful. It’s on special offer as well. I’ll be back tomorrow to put much more in my knapsack.

      I'm curious...what is your favorite food complement to beer?

      I would think anything greasy and/or salty in general would do. But I'm curious about specific foods in your guys' experience. I'm hoping to get some suggestions and recommendations so I get ideas for this summer.

      I'm traveling/backpacking. Sometimes I get bored or stuck in somewhere so I got an Acer Aspire Switch minilaptop/tablet combo to entertain me. I installed Renoise on it because I got the license already. It's a pretty heavy software for the low spec thing but I can make some simple things. So, out of boredom I just bang out some tracks, mostly with the default instruments which I sometimes edit to my own tastes. Decided to upload some of them to Soundcloud for storage and post here.
       
      I'm mastering with my earplug headphones so the mixing is probably pretty terrible..
       
      I'm calling this the CybeerTraveler 2015 series after the facts that it's futuristic and I drink lots of beer.
       
      TL;DR: I'm traveling with a cheapo laptop and making tracks when bored.

      STEAK AND ALE PIE WITH MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY
       
      500g diced steak
      2 carrots, finely diced
      2 sticks celery, finely diced
      2 cloves garlic, finely diced
      1 large onion, finely diced
      about 20 baby button mushrooms
      2/3 pint beef stock
      2/3 pint good ale or stout
      fresh parsley and thyme
      1 tbsp smoked paprika
      puff pastry (i used premade)
      butter
      flour
      sugar
      salt
      pepper
      white wine vinegar to deglaze
      an egg, whisked, to glaze
       
      large pot
      baking tray
       
      toss the steak in flour and season with salt and pepper, then brown it and set aside
       
      make a mirepoix - finely diced carrots, celery, onion, and garlic
       

       
      put it in the same pot the steak was in, sweat in more butter for five minutes, then deglaze the pan with the white wine vinegar and scrape up dat goodness.
       
      add the parsley, thyme, and mushrooms and cook for another minute or so
       

       
      add 2tbsps flour, two tbsps sugar, and 1 tbsp smoked paprika, and stir until the flour is golden brown
       
      add the ale and simmer for a minute, then add the stock and re-add the steak and simmer for about an hour.
       

       
      meanwhile, grease the pie tray with butter and roll half the pastry out and line the tray with it, with an overhang.
       
      ]
       
      reserve some of the broth so the filling isn't sloppy (i use it for gravy for the mash), then add the filling, and brush the edges of the pie with egg wash
       



       
      roll out the rest of the pastry and top the pie. trim off the excess pastry, crimp the edges of the pie, glaze well with egg wash, and make a few slits in the middle of the pie.
       


       
      into the oven with it for an hour at 200C/gas 7!

      So I bought it on a whim, having loved the chocolate oak-aged Yeti, and this is definitely its equal. Chocolatey, dark, sweet... absolutely wonderful beer, that even a few of my friends who don't like beer seem to like.
       
      Anybody else tried this magnificent drink?
